What's the silence regarding the Queen reaching her 90th birthday? I think she's a good role model for a monarch. Perhaps, there are those who have some grudge against the British? But, she did see Britain come out of two world wars as the winner, and has lived to see the English language being learned (learnt?) by so many. Or, are some hesitant to be pro-Queen, so as not to antagonize some who might have reservations (to say the least) in thinking kindly of the British?

I think it was very nice to see how well the Queen is doing taking in concederation her age.
It was fun to watch the celebration yesterday.
Today the Queen will have lunch with Obama and wife. Hopefully Mrs Obama does not start hugging the Queen this time.
And I wish Obama would not mix into the politics of UK and Brexit or not.

@Lordyaswas,
During her reign, Queen Elizabeth has met 11 of the 12 US Presidents. LBJ was the odd man out - that might have been due to WWI.

Indeed. And that's still remembered here in Germany very well: she was the referee of the football match during the Christmas truce ... and the third goal wasn't really one!

@Lordyaswas,
Her dad's one thing - having the willpower that seems to run straight down the maternal side is the powerful thing.

Typical bloody foreigner to not remember her role in the Boer War, and when she disguised herself as a nurse and went to the Crimea.

You are correct. My Anglophilia got the best of my thinking. What matters is that there will always be an England.

Why is Obama telling the British what to do regarding EU?
Does he hope to make a good impression on Merkel whom is going to meet now.?
Can´t imagen Cameron going over to USA tell the Americans whom to vote for.
